OPPORTUNITY FOR AN ENTHUSIASTIC GP TO JOIN OUR SEMI-RURAL AYRSHIRE PRACTICE.
Taiglum Medical Practice has approximately 9,000 patients distributed across 4 branch sites. Our 7 GPs (6WTE) bring a wide range of skills and interests which contribute to high quality medical care with a holistic approach. We work in collaboration with district nurses, health visitors and are supported by two practice nurses, one treatment room nurse, a young person counsellor, two phlebotomists and a cohesive team of reception and administrative staff. We are involved in the training of 5th year medical students from Dundee University. Scottish general practice is at a cornerstone in development with national discussions on a new working contract. Taiglum currently operates under the locally negotiable Section 17c contract. We work from Health Board premises so there is no financial burden of a buy-in to the practice. The local towns of Ayr, Kilmarnock, Troon and Mauchline are close by with excellent schools and Glasgow is a 40 minute drive. We believe in a healthy work/life balance and would reflect this in offering a position which best suits the needs of the applicant. Starting date is flexible from April 2018 and we would consider a variety of sessional commitments in either a partner or salaried capacity. We use DOCMAN & EMIS PCS. Out of hours are covered by AUCS (Ayrshire Urgent Care Service). Please take the link to view more details and find an application form.
Informal enquiries and visits are welcomed; please contact Sandra Barrett at the practice on 01292 591345, or via the “Email Practice” link.
